Todd Gloria: The best is yet to come

Todd Gloria

Yes, last week’s back-stabbing political coup against former interim mayor and council president, Todd Gloria was led by Republicans but had the help of some weak and unprincipled Democrats. In my view, the coup’s chief organizer was Councilman Scott Sherman, the new “Dick Cheney of San Diego.” In one of the biggest betrayals and back-stabbing [...]

Movie review: ‘The Imitation Game’

Let’s get this out of the way: Despite what you may have heard, read on Twitter, or seen ranted about on Facebook, The Imitation Game is a not a homophobic whitewash of Alan Turing, the gay British man who broke the Nazi codes during World War II and more or less invented the computer.

The Affair

dvr this Showtime, Sunday, Dec. 21, 10 p.m. The season finale of the much-buzzed about Showtime soap opera will probably not answer the key question of the show: Will Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) end up together, dump their spouses (Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson, respectively), and live unhappily ever after? If it’s [...]

Book review: ‘My Thinning Years: Starving the Gay Within’

Can you shed your past while you shed pounds, too? In My Thinning Years by Jon Derek Corteau, you’ll read about gains and [...]
